Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

TGIF - Totally Distracted.

Okay, it's 10 days from Christmas and as hard as I try to stay organized, things don't always work out the way I expected. For instance, we discovered yesterday that our older daughter won't be at our Christmas eve celebration since she has to work. We changed it in order for younger daughter and her entourage to make plans with the entourage's family. Since older daughter works retail, I can't say I am really happy with these plans. Somehow we'll work around it. In the meantime, I continue with prep work for the menu.

In the midst of all this chaos, is Mouse. Mouse, of course, is our adopted shelter cat. She is so fixated on the tree, and we have been fighting the battle or the ornaments with her. Last night she tried to climb the tree. Oh and it's artificial. She even tries to eat it. I've been keeping a spray bottle handy to keep her from the tree. Sometimes, all I have to do is show her the bottle and she moves away. Other times ...

Today, we are adding a new Christmas tradition. We are going to empty the hot tub, give it a quick clean and refill it. The high today is expected in the upper 50's and it seems like that might be the best we can hope for.

  1. My daughter is an RN and she is working daylight on Christmas Eve and 12 hours on Christmas Day.

    We will have our dinner on Christmas Eve, the only difference is that the hospitals are not too busy because everyone is at the Mall.
